Gasping for air waking up. sleeping not well?
I usually take herbal sleep medications like melatonin, valerian and sometimes 5 htp. I havent taken them since then but lately this week I wake up right before I sleep and panic and jolt out of bed feeling nervous, heart beating fast and then I go to the bathroom always to urinate. I havent slept that well these past few days at all. tossing and turning in my sleep.
Ive been to a cardiologist and had a cbc-complete blood panel a year or so ago and nothing showed up. I actually had a cbc probably 2-3 times since a year or so ago. I thought it was a thyroid issue but maybe its sleep apnea. My dad has it. Im thin but I heard thin people can get it.
What should I do? I have no health insurance. Im on unemployment (laid off a year ago). This lack of sleep these past few days is causing me to get depressed and think negative.
